Anti-government protestors take part in continued demonstrations in Cairo's Tahrir square in 2011

Returned again incidents of sexual assault in Tahrir Square in Egypt

We remember here American journalist Lara Logan was sexually assaulted in Tahrir Square on February 11 / February 2011, the day of the departure of former President Hosni Mubarak.

In November 2011, was a journalist in the channel "France 3" of sexual harassment during a demonstration you were covered in Tahrir Square.

Before that, U.S. signaled an Egyptian journalist to expose her to a sexual assault by elements in the police.

These three separate incidents .. but what about the new episode?

Is it different from previous incidents?

Answer (Yes)

Leaved confirmed France 24 correspondent in Egypt Sonia Dridi exposed to sexual harassment after being besieged by youths in central Cairo's Tahrir Square and began to touch her when she was correspondent directly on the air for the channel.

Sonia Dridi has stated correspondent channel "France 24" in Egypt told AFP that she had been sexually harassed while she was found Friday in Cairo's central Tahrir Square.

There are more details from the press itself:

Root Dridi group includes youth had besiege us and took these يلمسونها were to send a letter directly to the air for the news channel.

She said the harassment continued for several minutes before the friend could have saved.

And I think that there are reasons for such incidents?

For example, fashion and clothing worn by correspondence?

Alopecia If this is short and mild clothes

And نخن know that there are a large number of young people who are not yet married so far as a result of economic conditions

Should have been a no-show this short clothes or exotic for a large number of men and Egyptian youth

Tahrir Square is not a place for cultural symposium

I saw in Tahrir Square to prepare many of the Egyptians suffered from deprivation and hunger in all its forms and types private sexual deprivation as a result of not married yet
